Fundraising Intelligence Assets

What our students are saying!

“The live class discussions were great! It is so important for me to be able to ask questions and learn from other students’ comments and questions. The live classes really helped me explore some of the concepts as I experienced them at work.”

Liat Regev, MassachusettsLiat Regev, Massachusetts

“I love your Master Class format – small group, clearly defined curriculum, solid professional information and resources and focus on discussion. But most importantly I was impressed and delighted to see that you incorporated an additional and extremely practical layer of knowledge, through hands on experience with tools (pivot tables) or resources (Candid). This adds real value to the educational experience you offer.”

“I absolutely loved this course and found it just the right amount of challenging to get me thinking outside of the box. I really enjoy the opportunities for us to use our own database for assignments. The example profiles that were given for assignments were great examples for someone who has never seen a profile before. ”

“Frankly, when I signed up, I didn't think I would be able to do it. But, the videos are great, the resources are amazing and I'm so glad I took a leap of faith to try to learn this material. ”

  • Why memberships?

    Most of our students are working professionals with busy lives. With a membership, you have access to the learning content even when an unexpected deadline pops up at work or you need to take time to care for a sick family member. You can start and stop 24/7, according to your own scheduling needs.

  • Is there a free membership option?

    Yes! We are committed to providing valuable educational content regardless of your ability to pay. Visit our Free page to register for access to the Resource Collections or enroll.

  • What if I can’t attend one of the live meetings?

    There are two kinds of online meetings: Master Classes and Group Coaching meetings. Master Classes are recorded. Group coaching meetings are NOT recorded. These meetings are informal and designed to provide the best opportunity for you to get your questions answered. Online meetings are your opportunity to connect live with your peers and instructor. It’s up to you whether you choose to attend or not.

  • What is Group Coaching?

    Research Focused members receive monthly invitations to small group coaching calls with instructor, Jen Filla. These Zoom meetings are your opportunity to ask questions about your lessons and to get coaching in an informal meeting environment.

  • How much time will I have to spend on a course?

    We try to design the on-demand courses for about an hour a day or 15 to 25 hours per module, but you may need more or less time depending on the complexity of the content and the experiences and skills you bring to the course. Time to complete a course will vary depending upon your work and personal schedule as well.

  • Do I have to order the workbook separately?

    No. Everything you need to complete a course is provided to you in the online class. You have the option to order a print workbook from the Institute’s store that has duplicate and/or complementary content.

  • Can I get a group discount?

    Yes. If you have a team of three or more people, please contact sales@prospectresearchinstitute.org to ask about volume discounts. We also offer private training for groups.
